What exactly happened?
The thefts took place between April 2017 and May 2018 at the company’s branch in Al Barsha. The 33-year-old Indian warehouse keeper allowed his two transportation worker accomplices—a 31-year-old Indian and a 30-year-old Pakistani—to keep a large number of juice boxes when the deliveries were made instead of depositing them at the warehouse. They sold the juice later. The keeper collected Dh 10,800 (approx Rs 2 lakh) from the unlawful deal. He signed receipts and bills that the merchandise was delivered and deposited at the warehouse.
